Episode 3: Submarine Networks

Sep. 25, 2017 | 0:21:54

Contrary to popular belief, satellites account for a miniscule part of keeping the world connected. Submarine networks do the heavy lifting-all from the depths of the ocean floors. In fact, submarine networks carry over 99% of the world's intercontinental electronic communications traffic. And this month, connectivity experts will have their eyes on this critical infrastructure at Submarine Networks World in Singapore.  Ciena CTO Steve Alexander will present at the event taking place in Singapore on September 26th.  On the podcast today, Brian Lavallee discusses various topics of interest in this fascinating segment of the global network.
